I was given Flagyl 250 to cure my ecoli infection. Is that the right strength? I remember being given Flagyl 500?
Wrong antibiotic: If you've been given Flagyl for an E. coli infection- that doesn't make proper sense, since it will not work against E. coli. I would call the doctor to ask 'what' they are actually treating and why. There are different doses of Flagyl (metronidazole) and 500 mg is a standard dose. Sometimes a doctor will dose adjust a medication depending on the patient and the infection. You need to get answers. ...Read more

Just had a follow up urinalysis after ecoli infection because im still in pain. New test says I have "morganella morganii" 10^8 clinically insignifica?

Though this would present with fever and persistent unilateral pain. In that case, just using antibiotics will not resolve the infection. Further tests may be neede ...Read more
I'm about to take Prozac (fluoxetine) again and in the meantime ecoli infection has become a huge trigger. I'm concerned about the potential side effect of diahhrea occurring as that's a sign of infection. Scared?
Treatable: E. Coli normally live in our large bowel and perform a useful function there. When they contaminate our food or water, disease may result. There are many subtypes of e. Coli. They are a frequent cause of "traveler's diarrhea" with nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting, but respond rapidly to even a single dose of antibiotics. Other forms produce a more serious and potentially lethal infection. ...Read more
Unlikely to be a pbm: The bladder infection is in a separate compartment from the sexual activity. To acquire the infection the germ would have to enter the penile urethra and climb into the bladder. This is a common issue for females with the short urethra (tube) but the length of a male makes it less vulnerable. Also, emissions through the penis during sex and a good pee afterward would wash it all out. ...Read more

I have been getting klebsiella urinary tract infections after having cdiff. I have had chronic ecoli utis for years. Why did it suddenly change?
Chronic UTI's: The main bacteria in any infection are there for a variety of reasons. In your case, you likely had multiple courses of antibiotics.

Resistant Germs: These days, more germs are becoming resistant to our standard antibiotics. ESBL stands for 'extended spectrum beta-lactamase' which means that E. coli bacteria was a superbug and was not affected by the usual antibiotics that are used in surgery. Not sure 'how' u got that superbug-maybe if you work in a hospital, or had been back and forth to a hospital as a patient u could have been exposed then. ...Read more

Sounds OK, but...: This doesn't sound like you have any serious ongoing problem. It isn't unusual for genital area discomfort ("tight" scrotum, etc) to continue a long time after this sort of complex infection. You're obviously under a doctor's care; ask him or her. If things remain uncertain and you have not seen a urologist or infectious diseases specialist, that would make sense as the next step. ...Read more
